2012 NFL Mock Draft: Who To Select For Lions With 54th Overall Pick?

The 2012 SB Nation NFL writers mock draft is in the second round, and I'm about to go back on the clock with the Detroit Lions. In the first round, I selected North Alabama cornerback Janoris Jenkins, filling a need in the secondary. Now, with the 54th overall pick, I'm not yet sure which direction I should go in. I've got several names in consideration and am looking for some advice on who should be the Lions' second-round pick.

As it stands right now, quite a few of the players I had hoped would fall to No. 54 have already been taken. Much like in the first round, this is forcing me to move down my big board. This is also forcing me to keep several players in consideration for the pick. Right now, for example, I haven't ruled out guys like OT Kelechi Osemele, OG Amini Silatolu, CB Brandon Boykin, TE Orson Charles and OT Bobby Massie. There are others still in consideration not even on that list, so I have a lot of options for the 54th pick.

Ideally, I'd like to turn my attention to the offensive line, which is why I just listed three OL as possible picks. At the same time, though, I wouldn't mind adding even more depth to the secondary with somebody like Boykin or possibly even going in another direction entirely and giving Matthew Stafford yet another weapon. I'm not strongly considering any running backs, but I wouldn't say no to a receiver or tight end.

What do you guys think I should do in the second round?
